CACTUS CUP WRAP-UP & PARTY UPDATE

CONGRATULATIONS TO UNITED BLUE & UNITED 2021!

Another Cactus Cup is complete, and after two days of competition:

United Blue and United 2021 have been crowned AYLL champions of the Junior High and U6 divisions!

More impressively, both teams went undefeated for the entire season against the best of both AYLL and ALL competition, making them the undisputed Arizona state champions in their age brackets.

 

UNITED BLUE | 2015 JUNIOR HIGH ARIZONA STATE CHAMPIONS

 

UNITED 2021 | 2015 U6 ARIZONA STATE CHAMPIONS

 

As much as we're proud of these incredible team accomplishments, we're equally proud of the individual progress United players made across the board, especially the progression made by our brand-new players this year.

Your improvement in just three short months has been impressive to watch, and we hope your experience with competitive lacrosse leaves you hungry for more in the years ahead. 

Special thanks to:

  • All of our coaches this season, for their time, energy, knowledge and commitment to our kids
  • All of our corporate and individual donors for their generous donations
  • The Parents Board for making it all happen behind the scenes the last nine months as Scottsdale United started its first season from scratch
  • You, the parents, for choosing Scottsdale United as the lacrosse club for you and your son(s)

​With the AYLL season complete, there's just one thing left to do... celebrate!

Introducing Scottsdale United Selects travel program!

 

INTRODUCING SCOTTSDALE UNITED SELECTS TRAVEL PROGRAM

As the AYLL season winds down, the Scottsdale United Parents Board is pleased to announce the formation of the United Select travel team for lacrosse athletes interested in continuing to play lacrosse after the Cactus Cup is done.

United Selects is intended to complement the 3d Arizona Selects summer travel team and the Rhino Academy Flagstaff camp. It gives interested athletes the chance to continue to train and compete with a United team after Cactus Cup is done but before the summer options begin.

Here's how it works:

INCLUDED

  • Starts April 13th (two weeks after Cactus Cup) ends May 15th (two weeks before 3d Arizona training begins)
  • 10 two-hour team field practices from 6-8 p.m. 2x/week
  • Includes two tournaments:
    • Albuquerque Lacrosse Fiesta - May 2-3
    • Western Open Lacrosse Championships at Scottsdale Sports Complex - May 16-17
    • Both tournaments are for club teams like ours, not travel programs
  • Fees include tournament entries, field rental, equipment and coaches expenses

TEAMS

  • One combined team for current 4th and 5th graders 
  • One combined team for current 6th and 7th graders
    • Many 8th graders will be eligible to train with their high school JV teams after Cactus Cup is done, so we will not have a U15 offering     
  • No more than 20 players on a team
    • In the event that we have more than 20 players interested at each age group, current United coaches will select the teams based on ability, effort and attitude/coachability
    • Up to two goalies per team

​​NOT INCLUDED

  • Hotel and any travel/family related expenses in ABQ
  • Any team dinners/parties/activities
    • We will have a team hotel (likely a Marriott Courtyard or Sheraton) with a rate <$100/night with free breakfast
    • Families are not obligated to stay a the team hotel if they have other options

PRICE

  • ~$350 per player

Rhino Academy Flagstaff is Coming!

Rhino Lacrosse Academy is coming back to Flagstaff May 31-June 4

As we get into the back half of the AYLL season, we'll be sharing with you a few of the ways to keep growing your player's skills and love for the game after the Cactus Cup is done.  

One excellent opportunity to consider is the Rhino Academy overnight lacrosse camp held on the campus of NAU just as the summer gets underway.

This is an outstanding chance to immerse your player in quality, concentrated lacrosse instruction for 3.5 days, and with the boys staying overnight in supervised NAU dorms and eating meals together at the campus cafeteria, there's plenty of time to bond as United players and as a United club away from the fields as well.

To find out more, download the Rhino Academy Flagstaff flyer HERE.

The camp is open to any current 4th graders and up, and many current and former United/Swag/SLC players have attended the camp on more than one occasion. 

Knowing this, we have worked with the Rhino administrators to work out a couple of special deals for this summer for United players only:

1) Use the coupon code "united" when you register and save $25. If you have already registered, contact Rhino at to get your $25 refund. 

2) We can arrange to have United players stay together in the dorms, up to four to a suite. If you don't know the exact player your player would like to room with, just list "Scottsdale United" and Rhino will group them together as much as possible.

If you are looking at lacrosse camps this summer, consider Rhino Academy. Having a strong showing of United players at camp not only increases the fun the kids will have, but they'll come back stronger players--and we'll be a stronger club--because of the time they spend together there.
